My piece for October is now posted on my Pinelands Patches and Beadscapes blog. It's sad, but it helps to have beaded about it. More than ever, I believe this is the month that I used BJP as it was intended -- as a journal.
The brain child of Robin Atkins, the first Bead Journal Project, which began in June of 2007, included 241 women and 1 man who were dedicated and committed to creating 12 bead journal pages, one per month, for a year.
The BJP is all about visual journaling using any media and techniques, providing it includes some beading. We are free to structure our bead journal pages any way we want, as long as all 12 are the same size.
The current years' Bead Journal Project runs from January 2010 through December 2010. This blog is a means by which we may support each other in process, techniques and design. Participants (many with links to their personal blogs or websites) are listed below.
